Pakistan Women Doctors

In this picture taken on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, a Pakistani female doctor examines a patient at the Dow Medical Institute for Health in Karachi, Pakistan. In a country better known for honor killings of women and low literacy rates for girls, Pakistan’s medical schools are a reflection of how women’s roles are evolving. Women now make up the vast majority of students studying medicine, a gradual change that’s come about after a quota favoring male admittance into medical school was lifted in 1991.
